JAFFA, Israel, Mar. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Peres Center for Peace in Jaffa - Pastor Joseph Prince, founder and Pastor of New Creation Church was awarded the Friends of Zion International Relations Award. The award recognizes those who have gone above and beyond to create support for Israel around the world. It was inscribed with the words "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May those who love you be secure… For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, Peace be within you." (Psalm 122) and highlights one of the major objectives of the Friends of Zion Museum – to act as a beacon of light and increase support for the state of Israel internationally. Peres told Prince that: "Israel's relationship with Singapore is one of brotherhood and friendship."
Pastor Prince leads the New Creation Church, a 32,000-member mega church in Singapore and has brought thousands of Christians to Israel. His broadcast programs currently reach millions of homes across North America, Europe, Africa, Australia and Israel on both secular and Christian networks. Prince told Peres that "Singapore was built with the friendship and support of Israel." He pledged to continue supporting Israel and her people on the world stage.
The Friends of Zion Museum opened in Jerusalem last September and has set itself a goal of serving as a bridge, connecting people from around the world and motivating more communities to come out in support of Israel.
The museum includes state-of-the-art exhibitions and displays, including 3D displays and a unique audiovisual innovation developed exclusively for the museum.
The Friends of Zion museum emphasizes the saving of Jews during the Holocaust and the contribution made by the Righteous Among the Nations. It highlights the connection to Zionism and praises the work of those who have come to the aid of the Jewish people in recent times – through the British Mandate, the Holocaust and up until the establishment of the State of Israel.
The museum is the result of the hard work of thousands of supporters of Israel from all over the world, showcasing the contribution of Israel's friends such as former US President Harry Truman, former UK Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, Prof. George Bush, who was a relative of former US President George Bush, Orde Wingate, as well as the Righteous Among the Nations – individuals such as Oskar Schindler, Raoul Wallenberg, and the ten Boom family, who risked their lives to save the lives of Jews who were being persecuted all over the world.
Museum Address: Friends of Zion Museum, 20 Yosef Rivlin Street, Jerusalem. The Museum is currently open to visitors, reservation recommended on the Museum's website: www.fozmuseum.com or by emailing our reservation department at email@example.com or +972-2-532-9400.
